PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Just days after a Patriot Prayer protest dubbed “Tiny’s Freedom March,” Tiny — whose real name is Tusitola Toese — allegedly assaulted another person in Portland with the help of Donovan Flippo.

Toese and Flippo, who have both been associated with the Proud Boys, were indicted on 3 counts of assault Feb. 28, the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday. The indictment became public when Flippo was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center Tuesday.

Prosecutors said Toese and Flippo together assaulted someone June 8, 2018. They both face 3 charges of assault for “intentionally, knowingly and recklessly causing physical injury.” 

Flippo, 23, was arraigned Wednesday morning and pleaded not guilty. Toese, 22, has not yet been arrested, authorities said.

“Tiny” Toese is a familiar presence at the Patriot Prayer protests that have taken place in Portland over the past 2 years.
